Bains - indeed a very pleasing result all things considered. Had some ok but no amazing sessions and I was quite concerned about my general health earlier in the year to the extent that even climbing the stairs was a bit of a struggle. Also still quite injured with pretty bad pelvic, glute, hammy and sciatic issues too so to pb with a far from ideal race is satisfying to say the least!

Thanks guys for the nice comments.

Alp - not sure what brought on the stitch but don't think it was the workrate. My HR was lower than it has been in any marathon before up until that point and as I say I've never felt that good that far into the race. Only thing I can think is that I had one of the power gels on the course which I've not had before at about 28k so could have been because I was unfamiliar with it. Don't usually struggle with any gels though.

Thanks guys. Dan, I'm on a pretty nice streak of six PBs. Edinburgh 2012 in 2:29:33, London 2013 in 2:29:31, Edinburgh 2014 in 2:28:32 then a big breaktrhough to 2:22:49 at Yorkshire 2014, London 2015 was 2:22:12 and Berlin 2:21:51. Judging by the pattern of three runs within about a minute of each other then a breakthrough, I should be down to sub 2:16 next time. I'd take that.

Hi guys, just a quick drop in. 2:21:51 for 59th fella, 61st overall having reached half-way in 70:10. I was running really really well and in fact have never felt so comfortable in a marathon approaching 30k when I got a stitch which made the last 12k a very painful experience. Lost my head a bit between 35-40k but held it together and picked it up a little when I realised the chance of a PB was slipping. Managed to get a 21 second PB so very happy given the circumstances. On reflection I am pretty proud of my performance though and if anything it has given me great confidence that I definitely have a sub 2:20 time in me. I am pretty sure I would have been low-mid 2:20s maybe even under had I not got the stitch.

Pleased to put the marathon to bed for a while now, at least until next Autumn and probably until 2017 to focus on getting quicker over the shorter stuff.

Also great to meet up with TT, Jock, PP, Muss and many more after the race and get absolutely shitfaced. Lost my phone. Whoops.

Top results from virtually everyone here. Commiserations to those that didn't quite get what they were after.

Particularly chuffed for lev and ls21 after all you guys have been through with affected build up/last minute disasters!

couldn't make the red lion unfortunately as had an early train back north but great to catch up with a few of you before the race. Next year I am not going to make the same early train mistake and instead stay down an extra night and get on the beers! I didn't even use my voucher ffs.

London really is ace though int it?!?!

Hi guys, just dropping in. Well done all. It's fun this marathon stuff int it?

2:22:17 for me and 11th Brit, 29th overall. Not sure on the improvements Lorenzo, other than lots of hard work, an understanding family, a bit of talent and understanding the marathon quite well! I will go quicker though, of that I'm sure. My engine is a sub 2:18 engine but my legs aren't up to that yet, so speed is my next focus.

Hoping you all had fun and thanks for the cheers Minni & Speedy.

Beautiful looking 2:27 train. I might be on it too.

Phil I went for a 10 which is the same as my adios and they probably are a touch shorter. Width wise seems similar which means for me they fit better than the adios. I always had to go up to a 10 because Adidas were so narrow but at the expense of my toes not going quite to the end of the toe box. with this Boston boost I now seem to have the perfect shoe! It's only taken 8 years to find it!

Funny you should mention the Boston boosts Phil. I've just acquired a pair and been for my first run in them just this lunchtime. Absolutely loved them. They will be my marathon shoe as much more suited to heel strikers like myself than the adios. I like the adios but do find the upper quite hard and they don't have as much bounce as the Bostons. Will probably use the adios for halfs though.

lots of good training going on here. I'll be at London this year so hopefully bump into a few of you.
